My favourite part of London Fashion Week is the day before the first day. Getting there on time, before the circus begins, queuing with the other photographers, marking our place in the pit, greeting old friends, making new ones.. I love everything about the behind the scenes aspect of any production: a film set, a concert.. I just love a good crew. There's something about those kind of guys.
As a Virgo, organisation is important to me, and so my LFW photographic files are named Day One, Day Two, and so on. For me, today, Thursday, the day before the first day, is Day Zero, or Day-O. My dad's favourite song. My most vivid memory is my dad walking round the house, singing it out loud. So this is the song I've chosen to illustrate this post: click below, if you'd like.
The set design for this year is looking great: pale pink, ballet pink, so dress accordingly. I'm glad it's not crazy busy, like some seasons. It means photographically it will be much easier to shoot. I hate a cluttered background (another Virgo trait). Interestingly, the wall in the front is a large video pattern, which means shooting people in front of it will be pretty surreal. They look like they're cut out. Like blue screen. You'll see.
